“Perfect in every way.”

Reviewed 4 Mar 2015

What can I say, apart from sorry this review took so long April. You were the perfect host, baking for our arrival, and providing breakfast for the next day. The cottage was beautiful, warm and very comfortable. Lots of storage, and parking. I would say this place makes the perfect base for touring the Northern coast by bike, or just getting away to a quiet corner of NI. Should I return to NI, I know exactly where I'll be staying.

It is great to hear from you and thank you for your kind review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and that you hope to come back again. Warmest regard, April
